I've been around the bike scene for awhile now, and if I had a dime for every wannabe racer/poser that talked trash about stunters, I could by a brand new ninja 250 .

Well said!

Most racers have pulled a wheel or done an endo at one time or another. We're type "A" personality risk takers, just like most stunters, and most of us don't have anything against the sport.

Brandon, who rides for me, started out as a stunter, he was one of the original Hooligans way back when.

IMO, the throttle control he learned as a stunter helped immensely in his transition to the track.

As far as "stunting vs racing", I think both require a lot of skill to do them well.
I don't believe one or the other takes more skill, and there is definitely some overlap in the skills used in both forms.

I enjoy watching both, but I prefer racing over stunting. It's just a personal preference though.
